McNabb Laurie met Sandra Goodare and D&G Councillor Pauline Drysdale earlier to hear about allotment discussions in Kirkcudbright.
On Thursday night, there is a meeting in the Council’s Daar road offices in Kirkcudbright to explore the potential for allotments in Kirkcudbright – all are welcome.
Pauline Drysdale, D&G Councillor, said:
“Allotments have been shown to bring multiple benefits – in terms of health & wellbeing as well as the growing of food locally. I see this as a great opportunity for generations young and old to get together and make a contribution to food growing in Kirkcudbright.”
McNabb Laurie, Galloway Glens Team leader, said:
“Anyone interested in the idea of having an allotment in Kirkcudbright should go to the meeting on Thursday night at 6.30pm in the Council’s Daar Road offices. Sandra and I discussed the potential for an application for funds being made by the fledgling group to the ‘Our Heritage’ Small Grants Scheme.”
